Dr Mark Merry appointed as National Chair to AHISA

We are proud to announce that our Principal, Dr Mark Merry, has been elected to the position of National Chair of the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA).

AHISA is the peak independent Heads' and Principals' body in Australia with over 440 members and branches in each of the states and territories. The Chairmanship is a prominent position in the national educational scene and AHISA as an organisation, has considerable influence upon government policy making and upon public discourse on education. 

The appointment is for a two year period and as the position is held by a serving principal, it will operate concurrently with his role here at Yarra Valley Grammar. 

We are delighted with this news as the endorsement nationally of his leadership by Heads of Australia’s most prominent schools reflects very well both on him and our school community. 

Dr Merry will officially assume the Chairmanship at the AHISA Biennial Conference in Queenstown, New Zealand in September.
